You cannot enter university in United Kingdom after the 11th grade, as school education here lasts longer. Applicants need to eliminate the academic difference. There are two ways to do this: either study for a year at a university in your home country, or complete one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). Before submitting documents to the university, applicants take an English language exam. The university accepts the results of IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score is 7. The TOEFL score is not lower than 100. LSE also provides online undergraduate programs.
Master's degree at LSE
The admission committee of the university takes into account the previous academic performance of the student. In order to enroll at LSE for a master's program, you will have to confirm knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing the exam — IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score for admission is 7. TOEFL — 100 or higher. LSE provides an opportunity to get a master's degree remotely.
The city campus of LSE provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. London has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The school has a library where students can do their homework or just relax. The exchange of intercultural experience occupies a special place in training at LSE. The educational institution regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs and organizes various joint events.
After graduation from the university, students can stay in the country for 1 year. To do this, you need to extend your student visa or apply for a job seeker visa. You can find other options for immigration in our article.
